Inside Writing

Here we take you inside the world of writing and publishing from right inside your home.

For free.

Inside Writing is a Zoom talk show happening every Wednesday afternoon from 1-2 pm, Eastern Time—where three fascinating people (host + two guests: writers, agents, editors) discuss the inside scoop on publishing and writing.

The host is Josh Sippie, the maestro of the Gotham Writers Conference. The guests will be ever-changing, each episode focusing on a particular genre or aspect of writing.

Audience members will be able to ask questions.

Inside Writing Seasons 1 and 2 have concluded. Season 1 dealt with publishing books and Season 2 dealt with publishing short pieces. Both seasons can be found on YouTube, or on any major podcast platform.

Inside Writing Season 3 covers The Writing Life—social media, writer’s block, making money, and many other parts of being a writer outside of just getting the words down on the page.

The best way to get “in the door” is to be on our mailing list, so you’re notified as soon as new sessions are posted.

Inside Writing was a fun and informative hour-long discussion packed with great advice about the relationship between an agent and a writer and how to develop a platform as a writer.
